We hear a lot about personal agility, yet what does it mean to be agile? In today's fast-changing world, an agile mindset is more important than ever.
Cynthia Kahn, Founder of GSD Mindset and Tedx Speaker, will show you how to apply the agile mindset to set well-defined goals and how to achieve them.
Those who succeed post-COVID-19 cannot afford to become overwhelmed by uncertainty. We can beat overwhelm by applying three aspects of agile frameworks:
- Focus on what's important,
- Accomplish something now, and
- Take time to reflect.
Personal agility is an extension of the agile principles we already apply to software development: Set well-defined objectives, put together an action plan based on achievable accomplishments and move forward with actions we can take now. Through accomplishment, we learn from real-life feedback and decide whether to continue or pivot.
Benefits of attending: How to apply the agile mindset to set well-defined goals and create a patch to achieving them.
Cynthia Kahn, Founder, GSD Mindset
Wouldn't it be awesome if we could take the essence of the agile practices we apply to software development and change our approach to business and life in general? Cynthia Kahn knows it's possible. For over 20 years, she's been helping software development companies apply agile concepts to set goals, create action plans and achieve the results they want. Now, she applies the same agile techniques and coaches businesses how to focus on what's important, reduce overwhelm and remain competitive. Cynthia gives back to her agile community by advising the Scrum Alliance Certified Agile Leadership (CAL) Team.
Cynthia Kahn is co-author of the GSD Scrum Handbook and co-founder of the agile consultancy GSD Mindset. She speaks at conferences across the US. If you’re interested in learning how she started to apply agile principles in her personal life to become happier, check out Cynthia’s TEDx talk on the TED YouTube channel.
